We’ve been talking about The Boxtrolls for around a year now and the more footage that comes out for the film, the more excited I get. Laika has created a renaissance in the world of stop motion films through Coraline and Paranorman. With the Boxtrolls, it’s looking like they’ve built on that solid foundation and created a film that is even more fun and visually stunning. Check out the new trailer below:
Boxtrolls is slated for a September 26, 2014 release and features the voices of: Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade and Tracy Morgan.
A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
